Tom Colicchio, chef and restauranteur, who is probably best known (at least for us) for his judging on "Top Chef" will be joining MSNBC as a food correspondent. Adding Colicchio to MSNBC is seen as a move to broaden the types of stories the cable network will air going forward. (Apparently MSNBC has more changes on the way.) Colicchio will produce programs, as well as a series called "Everyone Eats", for Morning Joe the other dayparts. Much as CNN has attempted to rebrand itself (with some success), MSNBC appears to be doing the same, perhaps prompted by a ratings drop that has persisted since last year.
"On The Shoulders of Giants" is a great film to see in light of recent developments in the NBA. The film was written by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (also the executive producer) and Anna Waterhouse. The film was released on February 11, 2011.
Wow. Michelle Wolf's remarks at the White House Correspondents' Dinner , which aired on CSPAN was pretty funny for much of her routine. While there was rarely rip roaring laughter, most of her jokes hit the mark. Some of the shout outs: Reince Priebus (great porn start name), Jake Tapper ( what his orgasm might look like), Rachel Maddow (well, we didn't agree with Wolf's assessment) and Morning Joe (Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough's engagement - "it's like a #MeeToo working out"). All in all it may not make you cry, but it did make you think.
